Madzore is facing false charges of murdering a police officer in Glen View in May. He was arrested last week and was remanded in custody at Chikurubi Maximum Prison.

Madzore’s lawyer, Gift Mtisi tried to have the hearing postponed to Thursday but Nyazamba was adamant. In July, some of the MDC members facing the same charge failed to have their case heard in court as Nyazamba again failed to turn up in court saying he was sorting out a family issue.

Madzore is part of 28 MDC members who have been arrested on trumped up charges of murdering the police officers. Eight of them including Madzore are in custody while the rest were granted bail at the High Court.

The police officer was murdered by unknown revellers at a night club in Glen View 3.
